This is a continuing series that occurs during the Civil War, or as I like to call it , the war of Northern Aggression. The heroine, Megan, was sired by a vampire on his human lover. Megan's father left before she was born, and she spends the book trying to atone for her vampiric bloodline. The hero Cole, is a sheriff from Texas, who saw his town decimated by vampires, and is dedicated to eradicating them from the planet. They are thrown together as Megan searches for her half brother, who just happens to be with Cole fighting the vampire scourge.
